With a little rearranging I have this chest free for vignettes. The tv was moved to the other side of the mantel. This is a good spot for decorating. Using classic blue and white against the green walls makes everything pop. Besides I am not a white person but prefer color surrounding me. I know white is so popular now but unless it is a room with lots of natural light it falls flat to me and looks so cold. I love green as does the mister so it keeps this home happy. Pink and white roses fill the vases. The paintings are originals and add so much interest to the spot.
I still adore my curtains but once had a less than complimentary comment on them. I had to laugh when I saw a very wealthy person in home design showing off her new curtains that are practically twins to my curtains!
There is not a more comfortable chair than a rocking chair. I love ours and it seems to be good for the back as well.
We have little bananas on the way outside in the backyard! I have a visitor each evening eating my zinnias. It comes near my kitchen door when I turn off the carport light lately. Layla and Sonny alert me. Then I go in the living room and it sounds like it was in the room and got out of the chair right as I walked in. It makes me want to jump out of my skin. But I think it’s actually on the front porch sitting in one of the chairs. Possum, armadillo or raccoon, I imagine.
The rose of Sharon is producing flowers again. This has never happened! I may have to do another arrangement with them if they produce enough flowers.
